Social Networks and the Built Environment

The goals of this project are three-fold: 1) understand the degree of connection with neighbors and how it affects one’s healthy habits; 2) examine the relationship between the built environment and neighbors’ healthy habits; and 3) increase awareness about healthy habits by translating the findings of this study to neighborhood residents.
